AFROPOP AFROPUNK STAR LEMI GHARIOKWU

By Tip Jordan, AFROPUNK Contributor – What happens when African culture and Pop art mingle and explode in the non-traditional art scene? You get Afro Pop Art! Dubbed the King of Afro Pop Art, Lemi Ghariokwu has created numerous album covers for the likes of Bob Marley, Lucky Dube, Miriam Makeba and most notably, the legendary Nigerian musician, Fela Kuti. Commanding the eye’s attention, the vibrant colors, social commentary, and figurative characters dance with the messages of equality, freedom from social dogma in mind; making sure to compliment the energy of each album compilation.
